Still no Carol? That's not good. I don't imagine Daryl is taking that very well.
Talking Dead revealed a lost scene on the road with Daryl & Maggie, where Daryl gets to have some emotional effects to it. Then the teaser for next week has something of her's show up, a knife of something. She's still out there

Last week, over 70% of voters said they wanted or at least expected Rick to go on a walker killing spree, so it shouldn't surprise anyone that he did just that. Seems like he might have been looking for her ring or something

I don't imagine the behavior will last

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Love wherever they are taking me with The Walking Dead. I have not read the comics, so I do not have any reference or expectations. This is by far one of the best portrayals of "zombies" on TV I've ever seen. The last 2 episodes in particular were so incredible. As was mentioned on The Talking Dead, it seemed like the previous episode was a season finale, and this one was a season opening, I like that out of no where it felt like that. Hope for more gripping episodes like that. Great series !

Talking Dead confirmed that the bloated walker did eat Lori.
Didn't see Talking Dead, was that a deleted scene?

As many of you pointed out, I was wrong in assuming Carl didn't shoot Lori. Carl really recovered nicely from that, while Rick's gone off the deep end.
Yea, he seems to be dealing with the death of his mother much better. I would have assumed the opposite considering Rick and Lori's strained and distant relationship at the beginning of season 3.

the phone rang. I'll be honest with you, I hate talking on the phone and a phone ringing when it's least expected is one of the creepiest things for me. Even in a "safe" environment, it's jarring!
I'm wondering if the phone call is Rick being delusional or it actually was ringing? If it's actually ringing perhaps that's Carol in another part of the jail asking for help?

General Question: I'm wondering if they are positioning the Governor as 'bad crazy,' or simply 'crazy,' like Herschel was in trying to bring his daughter back for an 'illness?'

Also, Lori's reaction to the Mad Max style games with the zombie's seems understated. I'd think she would have been more appalled by the towns people behavior.

Me neither. I saw Rick staring at these little bits of flesh where a body has been. Then he saw the bloated walker nearby and started hacking at it like crazy ... I'm afraid I didn't put it together until now.

Normally it would make sense for it to be Rick's delusion. But I'm not even sure that phone was visible from where Rick was standing. He had to go find it after it rang. Unless artistic license is at work here, that suggests it's real.

I'm in favor of it being Carol.

Uh, yeah, that's really in question for you? The guy relaxes by staring at fish tanks full of zombie heads, he murdered a group of innocent military survivors just to steal their hardware, and he's organized a zombie-ringed blood sport to keep his people's minds off all the other crazy shit he's doing.

Yeah, totally not a ''bad crazy'' guy at all. Just Herschel Lite(tm).

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I found the whole zombie/gladiator scene to be beyond distressing, and it reinforces the creepiness of Woodbury. The prison might be more than a little light on hope right now, but they don't seem to have reached the same level of brutality as Zombie Mayberry = Woodbury.

Why was the event so loud? What if there had been a breach of their walls? Would they have even heard a warning?

OMG, Lori's body has been eaten by a Walker. I could stomach the numerous killings of zombies but to know that one of the main characters has been eaten by a zombie, that really sickens me.
Yeah, that's pretty unsettling.

It was! I thought, at first that Rick was going to cut what remained out...to bury. It still gives me the shivers.

Yeah, I thought he might want to bury her remains or was looking for her ring. Pretty gruesome stuff.

I phrased my question poorly I suppose. Yes he's not Herschel lite that's for sure. I guess more properly stated, has he gone bat crazy insane as a result of the circumstances or was he just a bad guy to begin with even before the zombie apocalypse? A better analogy would be Shane heavy or Shane lite?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

With the way the way he keeps his zombie daughter around I think it's pretty clear he's had a bit of break from reality. He probably wasn't an evil guy to start with but circumstances have made him head in that direction.

Agreed. But like Herschel he believes there is some kind of cure to be found which is why that scientist is doing experiments I presume?

Did the phone scene remind anyone of Episode 1?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Someone on the CNN website commenting on the show had an interesting thought:

Lori really is still alive at this point. They kind of gave it away on the after show called "The Talking Dead". After a cast member is killed off and is permanently off the series, they give them a cast party. They have for each of the major cast members killed off. They did for T-Dog but not for Lori. Those that say Carol rescues her are probably correct. Or both may show up on the Season Finale as walkers. Either way, both characters and actors are still officially part of the series (Lori and Carol).
